Many people think the problems we are facing in America and even in the world are caused by Joe Biden and his administration. In the short term that may be true but they can be undone by a new president. At least we all hope so, in the short term we will be living in hell. Thankful that we still have a democracy where we can vote again and reverse our course. However, the real danger to America is not Joe Biden, but the voters who are capable of supporting such a man as President. To entrust the American legacy to a man so incompetent and shallow that they leave the sacrifices of those who built this country and even the dreams of the people throughout the world at risk.

Some people are so self-centered and un-informed that they vote for whoever offers them the most free stuff. People who forgot those that gave up their lives for the American dream. Many of these self-important people were born here and live off their parents, government, or other handouts. They have no idea of the sacrifices people made to give them the freedom that they take for granted. This part of the electorate that helped elect this fool, has very little common sense or good judgment. And that is what is really serious, how could anyone elect a person such as Joe Biden and far worse is who else would they elect. Perhaps a Kamala Harris or maybe even Pete Buttigieg. America can survive a fool as president but not one after the other.

The list of fools is long and perhaps some voters were misled by the loud rhetoric about climate change, the use of fossil fuels, or maybe race-based hate. All claims are very contentious and they are on very shaky ground. Take climate change people who seem to be the loudest shouting, saying there is a coming ice age or the ice caps are melting. I recently saw a picture of Sidney Harbor from 105 years ago compared to the harbor today and there was not any change in the sea level, not even a centimeter. So
much for the ice cap melting. Then there is fossil fuel use, which we all depend on to live, but now must
be eliminated by 2030 or we are all doomed. In a way, if we eliminate fossil fuels, we will be doomed either by freezing to death or dying of heatstroke or starving to death. Not good choices.

Then the race card, America is the best place in the world if you are a minority. Sure, it is not perfect but it is the best there is. Who is complaining, is it mainly black citizens? It is true our education system has
failed a great number of black kids, but still, many rises through hard work and talent. We need to do better here but it is hardly a reason to tear down the whole country. Better to get rid of the teacher’s unions who think they are running the schools instead of the parents. The union leadership has
lost sight of their divine mission, of teaching children.

Blaming the current head fool for the mess we’re in, must not blind us to understanding that there is a vast alliance of fools out there who elected Joe as their King of fools. The Republic can survive a Biden, who is, after all, just a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.

  1. Mike, did you already forget the last president? The one who loves Putin, was impeached twice, still thinks he won the last election, and loves to scam the gullible out of their hard earned money. Now there was a real clown.

  2. Yes, my clown drove down unemployment to record low levels while not raising the number, not in the workforce. It is easy to get low unemployment numbers when you eliminate all those who now choose not to work and just live off the government. However, some of his best acts were energy independence, Extraprise Zones and rolling back the EPA. I’ll take my so-called clown over your fool any day. Sme of his other great act are almost too many to list but I’ll give you a few.

    Restored American leadership on the world stage and advancing an America first agenda. (Green first and America last)
